Evan and I are still newlyweds (married 1 year in November) and recently purchased our first home in Fate, TX. We are so thrilled our sweet baby Jackson William Tilley has arrived (6 weeks early) on 12/18 at 12:39am! However we were not able to take him home with us yet. He was placed in the NICU with a feeding tube for 16 long days as he simply was too young to know how to eat, take a bottle, or breastfeed.
This has been an emotional rollercoaster as we saw new parents depart the hospital with their babies and it saddened us each time we had to leave him. Evan and I are both in the hotel/hospitality industry so we are trying to be as thrifty as possible however are now facing the fact that we not only need to pay for my 6 day hospital stay (I was on bedrest) but now his 16 day NICU stay along with food, parking, hotel, the list goes on. The goal has gone to $15,000 as insurance informed us we must meet the deductible for 2017 and also 2018! Since I am staying home and Evan has switched jobs (Jackson and I will be added to his insurance plan) we now have a 3rd deductible!
If you could support our new family of 3 by making a donation and then sharing it with your network, I would appreciate it beyond measure. I know that money can be tight, so please know that even $5 helps me get closer to our goal! Let me know if you have any questions and thank you for continious prayers.
